    Vlookup two variables

    HI,

    I am trying to plot a value within a cashflow based on two descriptions - a month (number) and description (text). I have tried a formula in cell F8 in the "Asset Base & Capex" sheet.

    Any ideas would be greatly apprecaited.

    My goal is to have the Capex amount move anywhere along row 8 based on a reference to "Plant & Equipment" and the relevant Month. I.e. if F8 looksup Plant & Equipment in the "Assumptions" sheet, it will look at the month the payment is to occur i.e. month 10 and the amount i.e. $500,000. If you change the month or the amount, my goal is to have row 8 (in "Asset Base & Capex" sheet) plot the value automatically.

    =IFERROR(INDEX(Assumptions!$C$4:$C$10,MATCH($A$5,Assumptions!$A$4:$A$10,0),MATCH(F$2,Assumptions!$B$4:$B$10,0)),"")

    That works however I need it to look up the description "Plant & Equipment" too.

    The red part of the formula does this.
